Changing parent folder format after saving it with "Save for sub-folders" resets sub-folder format

I have a parent folder with a bunch of sub-folders. I want all my sub-folders to have the same format which is slightly different from parent folder's format (sorting order specifically).

My plan was to set up the format of the parent folder the way I want the sub-folders to be and save it with the "Save for all sub-folders" option, then change the parent folder's format to whatever I want it to be. Problem is doing so seems to completely reset all the child folders' formats.

You need to create a wildcard path format matching the child folders if you want to also have a separate format which only matches the parent folder. Have a look under Preferences / Folders / Folder Formats.
